Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton will travel to Kansas City on Thursday to speak to the National Baptist Convention USA, the groups announced Monday.

The speech to delegates is scheduled for 5 p.m. It isn’t clear whether the public will be admitted for Clinton’s speech.

The National Baptist Convention USA calls itself the oldest and largest African-American religious organization. The convention began Monday and concludes Friday.

It will be Clinton’s first visit to Missouri since she was nominated. Sen. Tim Kaine of Virginia, Clinton’s running mate who grew up in Overland Park, held a fundraiser in August in Kansas City, but did not hold any public campaign events.

Republican nominee Donald Trump hasn’t campaigned in Kansas City since the Missouri primary in March. His running mate, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, has scheduled two campaign stop in Missouri for Tuesday.
